Where the Wild Things Are---the movie!
Posted by Ashley
It recently came to my attention that this classic children's book is going to be made into a movie. I am both intrigued and worried. Do we have another Jumanji on our hands? A movie where the directors take only the basic idea of the book and run completely wild with it? Because really, there's not much to the plot of this children's book---even less than Chris van Allsburg's classic. Max gets sent to his room without dinner. He imagines an island inhabited by Wild Things over whom he becomes king. Then he leaves, even though they don't want him to. The end. I'm not seeing what the real driving angst in this film is going to be. Come October of this year, I guess we'll find out! Here's hoping for a good one!
